The styling of the Ford Flex may be controversial, but some will definitely love its 1950s cruiser style. And everyone will like its extremely useful cabin tech, which helps you find cheap gas and avoid traffic congestion.
2009 Ford Flex
With the success of the retro-styled Mustang, Ford adds another bolt to its quiver of nostalgia vehicles with the Flex. Built on a crossover platform, the Flex follows the form of a 1950s station wagon, and includes distinct styling cues such as a white or silver roof cap and ribs along the sides.
One key aspect of the Flex is that it puts a non-SUV seven-seater in Ford's lineup, with a body style more attractive than the Taurus X. The cabin looks surprisingly low from the outside, but feels spacious inside.
